Character error 

When Gaston is leaving his Uncle after ranting about Gigi's decline, it sounds as though he says "goodbye Maurice" which is the actor's real name (Maurice Chevalier) and not character name.

Continuity 

In the scene where Alicia is teaching Gigi about the jewels, in a shot, Alicia is facing Gigi, having her hands pointing up and Gigi is facing her, listening. In the very next shot, Alicia is playing with a string of pearls, facing away from Gigi. Gigi is sitting beside her but also not facing her but still looking at her.

At the ice rink, the only couple that includes a skating instructor are dressed slightly differently than Liane and the instructor. He appears to have a black hat on and she a large black bow on her hat. These items have disappeared when we see a close up of them skating.

When Gaston comes to talk with Grandmother, he sits down and unbuttons his jacket. The camera turns to her, and back, he stands up, his jacket has magically buttoned itself, and he once again unbuttons it!

Revealing mistakes 

During Gaston's song by the pond thinking of Gigi, there is a fence in the pond forcing the swans to stay in close background. The swans, obviously confused yet undeterred, keep swimming into the fence attempting to get to the swan in deep background on the other side of the pond.

The café where Honore (Maurice Chevalier) sings "I'm Glad I'm Not Young Anymore" is clearly a studio set. As he leaves the café at the conclusion of the number, a horse and carriage pull up on the street in the background, and their shadows are seen on the painted backdrop of the buildings at the back of the set.

In the early scene in the park, the principal actor casts a shadow backwards (away from the viewer), while the carriages in the background cast shadows forwards (towards the viewer), revealing the production lighting.
